Things are looking up for the meetings, incentives, conventions and exhibitions (Mice) industry, with 10 major shows attracting more than 5,000 foreign delegates each signed for next year - twice as many as there were this year, reported the Straits Times.

Together with the two integrated resorts' plans to host more than 60 events in the next few years - a fifth of them new to Singapore - they are painting a rosier picture for business tourism.

Most of the shows are returning annual or biennial events, such as the Singapore Airshow in February. The mega show, which is Asia's largest aerospace and defence event, is expected to pull in about 40,000 trade visitors next year, of which about 13,500 will be international visitors.

Another show making its return is Food and Hotel Asia, which will attract 21,000 visitors. But on the list is also one new event: The Youth Olympic Games, which is expected to draw more than 5,000 athletes and officials, 1,200 media representatives and 20,000 volunteers.
